Thanks to my pal Wendy, in Missouri, I think I can post a pic of the boys on Santas lap, this is one of my favorites, where have the years gone?
Casey made this when he was just 4, that was 21 years ago.
Seems as we get older and with doing things for the shop, every year, getting our tree up gets later and later! I was beginning to wonder if we were gonna get it up this year! Well, yesterday was the day! We finally have our tree in our living room! Putting up the tree for me brings back so many memories, our tree is not a primitive tree, its more a family and friend tree, I have so many wonderful ornaments that friends have made and given me through the years, and lots that Chad and Casey made in preschool and in cub scouts, and then there are the ones of them taken with Santa, those are some of my favorites. When the boys were small we used to go to Lazarus, in Columbus, Ohio every year for them to see Santa and to see the wonderful window displays that Lazarus used to do, they were magical! We would have the boys picture taken on Santas lap, and they were made into ornaments, I tried to take a picture, but it kept glaring, not sure what I was doing wrong, will try again later. Anyway, we now have our tree, and everytime I walk by it, I smile, remembering when the boys were small.
